"The world called and we came"

educcare was founded by Marcus Bracht and Axel Thelen in Cologne in 2001.

Marcus Bracht,
Born in 1969, he is a graduate industrial engineer. He was a consultant with Cap Gemini Ernst & Young prior to educcare. Marcus Bracht is married with a daughter, Carlotta.

Axel Thelen,
Born in 1962, he is a graduate businessman. He was managing partner with Electric CompuNet prior to educcare. Axel Thelen has been very happily married since 1996. He has two sons, Alexander and Frederick, who have since outgrown kindergarten.

Our motivation is based on personal experience of day care centres and the common demands of parents, educators, companies and politics for new approaches in early childhood. We have accepted this challenge.
